1st  Thematic CERN School of Computing 2013
3-7 June 2013, Split, Croatia



University of Catania. Italy

I obtained my MSc in Computer Science Engineering in January 2007. After working in the Distributed Systems research group at DIEEI of Catania University, last year I started a PhD at Dept. of Physics and Astronomy in Catania. My research activity has been mainly focused on meta-heuristics and scheduling algorithms in Grid Computing. I am currently involved in a project, founded by the Italian Ministry of Research that aims to develop a detection system able to detect radioactive materials inside containers, to counteract the illegal transfer, by means of muon tomography. It uses the secondary particles of cosmic rays revealing the deflection of these particles when crossing high Z materials. I deal specifically with track reconstruction issues and with the visualization of 3D tomographic images. OS I use in my daily work are Linux and OSX, sometimes Windows. C/C++, Java programming, and I have also worked with R, ROOT and GEANT4.
